"Dr. Maria Axvig-Dwyer and her staff are very professional. Dr. Axvig-Dwyer always takes the time to explain the procedures in a way that takes away any anxiety from being at the dentist. I feel very comfortable every time I visit and am very pleased with the level of expertise and friendliness of the entire staff at Smiles by Design. Thank you for making my visits such a wonderful experience for me!" –Rebecca Albers-Pierce

"I want to personally thank Dr. Axvig as well as Dr. Dwyer and the entire staff at Smiles By Design. You have been our family dentistry for over a decade and have gone the extra mile time and again for us. Everyone has always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will never forget the day I called with a dental emergency ~ I was so scared and anxious. You reassured me everything would be okay then cleared your schedule to resolve my predicament. As it turned out, you were right ~ today I have a smile that I am proud of! I could not recommend your office enough! Again thank you."
